Sophie Turner has no patience for anti-maskers.

In a video she recently posted to her Instagram Story, the Game of Thrones actress reminded her more than 15 million followers that wearing masks is crucial during these COVID-19 times, a.k.a. in the middle of a pandemic.

"If I can wear a mask while I give birth, you can wear a mask at Walmart," she put it succinctly. "And that's the tea."

Turner welcomed her first child, a baby girl named Willa, with husband Joe Jonas this past July.

This isn't the first time the actress has slammed people for not following public health guidelines this year. Back in March, Turner posted another video of herself urging fans to stay inside and adhere to social distancing.

Per BuzzFeed, the actress said, "Stay inside. Don't be fucking stupid. Even if you count your freedom [...] over your health. I don't give a fuck about your freedom."

She later continued in the video, "You could be infecting other people, other vulnerable people around you by doing this. So stay inside, guys! It's not cool, it's not big, and it's not clever. And that's the tea."

As of today, there have been more than 17 million reported cases of the coronavirus and more than 245,000 deaths in the United States alone, according to The New York Times. Despite reports of downward trends just a few months ago, cases have been steadily surging across the country, per the Times, with experts warning, "The worst is yet to come."
